"His wines are a masterclass in under-statement, letting the terroir do all the talking via relatively low alcohol levels plus a prudent use of oak (mostly Damy) and sulfur. The magic happens when you allow his wines to age in bottle. Having had the privilege of vintages back to the 1960s, I can vouch that they have an unerring ability to mature with grace and style..."

Les Fremiets comes from a 1.5 acre plot whose vines date from 1932, 1950, and 1978. This parcel is up-slope, and the wine is very calcaire, or limestony; you literally taste the stone in this elegant, intensely perfumed wine. This is Voillot’s most quintessential Volnay, despite the fact that this vineyard borders the Pommard AC.
